Default There's Always a Bright Side

It will be bad if Republicans lose the House in this election. But let's keep an eye on the bright side:

During Obama’s two terms in office, Democrats experienced a net loss of 968 state legislative seats, the largest net loss of state legislative seats in this category since World War II. The second-largest loss occurred following Dwight D. Eisenhower’s two terms in office, when Republicans were handed a net loss of 843 state legislative seats.

Democratic U.S. Senate seats fell from 55 to 46. Their share of the House plummeted from 256 seats to 194. … Democratic governerships also became a rarity during this eight-year period, slipping from 28 to 16.

After the election of Obama, there was much talk of a new era – that a coalition of young, minority and female voters would usher in gains for the Democrats for decades. That did not happen

He lost the House, then lost the Senate, then because of his socialist extremism gave the White House to Trump.

Obama’s Democrat Party has been a loser for 8 years on a colossal scale. If we Republicans lose one, we are still doing pretty good.

The only thing of worth from them now is that their globalist-impairment of “fanatical patriotism” walks in truth. Might as well throw in our honorable heritage too, a particular disgust of theirs.

But the message is coming in loud and clear, ‘Get up, and make every effort to vote!’ Of course theirs’s has a slight twist; ‘take SW and the seven dwarfs along with you’. Lol.

Too early? Dunno. He has done quite a lot and as we all know the bulk of that is handled broadly (as far as the medias can be trusted). Ask me if I think he has done well for base-specifics to rebuff Ann Coulter? No, not too much.

Surely not? D.T.’s advisors aren’t trying to get him to pollute that central “wall” promise to be more accustom to J.M.’s ‘across the aisle’ shoes?

Coulter agitates to get attention. I think Trump has an ace card up his sleeve and it will get played in a little less than three weeks. We shall see.

U.S.C. section 284 gives the president and the Defense Department the power to build the wall anyway. Section 284 provides that the Secretary of Defense “may provide support for the counter-drug activities or activities to counter transnational organized crime” by measures that can include the “construction of roads and fences and installation of lighting to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States.”

NOW, we know that Pelosi will not negotiate in good faith as she promised she would, and that will trigger the second shutdown, and THAT will trigger U.S.C. section 284.

That is my prediction.

I agree with your assessment Terry. And I feel that Trump has only put off this emergency procedure, to give the normal way to get things done a chance to succeed the more correct way. It shows that he is NOT like Obama, doing whatever he wants on a whim or in secret. He actually will give the standard way a chance even though he is pretty sure it wont work that way.

Yes.
By doing exactly what Pelosi wanted, when she reneges on her promise to negotiate (and you know she will) then the public will blame HER for the second shutdown, and having just been bolstered by the Feb. 5 State of the Union address, Trump will have all the cache he needs to use U.S.C. section 284.

That is my prediction.

Hopefully, just as you say!

And reason enough to resist this commenter's bright side,
"In order, the 4 best Presidents;

1. Trump
2. Washington
3. Lincoln
4. Jefferson

The savior of our country, the father of our country, the great emancipator and the maker of laws. The 4 best patriots this country has ever produced, we should feel proud we can live in the times of one of these giants among men."

It is interesting that the Great Lincoln actually had to break the law in order to save the Union.
